Nice --  Does make C-130 into nifty flying boat. :smiley:      Kind of build I would like to do.

Concur but yours would no doubt be in USN blue!

Another fantastic flying boat, eric! Most excellent!

Very nice.  I would posit, though, that flipping the engines to over the top of the wing would reduce spray ingestion.

Always loved C-130 seaplane conversions, and this one is well done. I remember one being in the Resident Evil: Code Veronica game, and seeing the idea in other places too. Always felt like a 'should have been' rather than a 'what if'.
I much prefer the 'flying boat' style like this than the 'floatplane' ones.

Looks great!!  In that color, it definitely looks the proper race aircraft.

Canadair (waterline), blue : primary seaplanes
« Reply #852 on: May 23, 2019, 08:29:10 PM »
the other half of the hull used for the Hercules :
doing a waterline flying boat is a bit of a cheap trick (especially as it appears too deep in water, as if overloaded),
but it's fun

That's going to be a long takeoff as it looks quite overloaded.  A beautiful waterline model, there.
